You ain't just whistling Dixie!! Problem is that the AlphaHotels might decide to push for the processing of lard into diesel fuel.

Lard makes great fries, but they lack flavor. Rendered beef fat is much better for tasty fries - like McDonalds used to make decades ago.

[quote=oldcampcook;528619] In Germany, they carmelize onions and put it in lard, also for a spread. [quote]

My three Polish aunts did this as well, and spread it on seeded rye bread, fresh from the Polish bakery.

DEE - licious!

Note: They lived to be 87, 89, and 92.
